I have been working in schools since 2004, initially as a Teaching Assistant and then wanting to become a teacher, which I achieved in 2014. I am very passionate about working with parents, children and other adults that help move children forward, through developing their confidence to achieve this.
I believe that my skills and guidance, I can help children to reach their potential. I have worked with various children with different needs. I can help children to succeed and enjoy their learning and making it fun, but effective and tailored to their individual needs.
I am available to help with all primary subjects. I am experienced in Read Write Inc, Jolly Phonics and Letters and Sounds Phonic schemes.
I can tailor a individual education plan to your child's needs and abilities.
I am a highly experienced, flexible and very versatile tutor, with advanced degrees and teaching qualifications in business, finance, history, literature, art, classics, maths and sciences. I teach at Middlesex University, and also conduct face to face and online training for a variety of other clients, from teenagers up to adult professionals. I have experience with exam prep (IB, CFA, CISI) as well as undergrad and postgrad courses in the subjects listed above. I can travel across London or even overseas for the right assignments. I believe I charge fairly for value provided, and promote an engaging, enjoyable teaching and learning style.

Returning to teaching after a career in newspaper and magazine publishing, I've had recent classroom experience and now offer one-to-one tutorials for Key Stage 2 and 3 pupils. Lessons aim to support learning, encourage good grasp of grammar, vocabulary and sentence construction, and promote confidence in verbal reasoning and creative writing. Currently, I am offering online tutorials via Zoom, so location is flexible. Ordinarily, I'm based in Sevenoaks and can welcome pupils to my home. For parents' reassurance, I hold fully updated DBS certification.
Rachel is a qualified Primary School Teacher (PGCE 1996) with a further qualification of Reading Recovery teacher (UCL 2015) in post since 2015 part time in school. Rachel stayed at home for several years to bring up her family and returned to work in school in 2008. She has been teaching one to one for over seven years in her local infant school, firstly with a Year 1/2 maths intervention before moving to Reading Recovery, completing her Reading Recovery training year in June 2015.
In addition to school Rachel has been doing some tuition from her home – all online via video link since the start of the pandemic. Her specialist area is Key Stage One, although she also has experience tutoring lower Key Stage Two children who were struggling with reading and writing and had additional learning needs.
She is mum to three grown up sons, the youngest of which isstudying for his A levels whilst the oldest is focusing on completing a degree in Architecture. One of her sons has high functioning Autism with additional needs, meaning she has a lot of personal experience in helping children who are on the spectrum and may require a different approach to their education.
Rachel has always loved reading and enjoys being able to pass on this skill to the next generation. In recent years she has attended some overseas volunteer projects in the school holidays to help children there develop their English language skills, enhancing their employment opportunities for the future.
Rachel is very much enjoying teaching online and is finding it to be an exciting new way to educate young people.

Specialist in Primary Mathematics
I have worked in the education setting for the past 9 years; working with children of differing ages and abilities. In 2013, I qualified as a Primary School teacher and took up my first teaching post in a school in Devon. I taught a mixed class of Year 4,5 and 6 children over many years and got through many Year 6 SATs testing too. During this time, I was part of an Ofsted inspection where I was graded ‘outstanding’ in my teaching practice.
I then went on to teach at another Devon primary school where I taught a variety of year groups. Having trained as a Maths specialist for teaching at Exeter University, I became the Mathematics Lead for the Exe Valley Federation. During this time, I went on to learn more about the best methods to teach Mathematics along with taking part in a Mathematics Mastery research programme. I supported teachers and ran training in how to improve Maths teaching across the schools.
Whilst studying for my degree at the Plymouth University, I spent time researching in both Special Needs and main stream Schools to learn about child development. In 2011, I worked as a Learning Support Assistant at a Special Needs School where I worked alongside the Mathematics teacher to support the children’s learning in a way that would work best for each child in the school.
Tutoring has become a natural progression for me after teaching for many years. I genuinely believe that with the right support ALL children can succeed. Watching children make small steps of progress has been the key to my love of teaching. As a tutor, I can gently assess your child and give them the extra support to help them gain the confidence they need in school. Many parents have mentioned how their child’s confidence has improved since tuition, not only in the subject they were tutored in, but as an individual overall. This in many ways is as important as grades achieved. Through the improvement in confidence, a child can start to flourish and will start to get more out of their school setting.
